  1. I have just started a new playthrough and it's actually outrageous that this has not been fixed after so any patches. Outrageous.
  2. as a person who works every single day with lots of Brits, I can say that nothing is more boring than a pretend fantasy person speaking like they're in a high shool production of Macbeth. maybe consider that what is boring to you, will actually be refreshing for a whole bunch of people. and also tell me this - what makes you an authority on how kith from Eora should speak? do you have a degree in Eora linguistics and phonetics? have you created this world and can speak with confidence about how an Island Aumaua raised in the Ixamitl Plains or whatever would sound? what exactly does "appropriate" mean in this concept?
  3. There are easier ways to do it - https://forums.obsidian.net/topic/99140-a-man-of-chimes-quest-how-do-i-save-giacolo/?p=2019569 Dang it if only I didn't hate dragging Xoti around. Giacolo would gladly sacrifice himself to spare you the pain of taking Xoti out on a mission. you have nothing to be sorry about. Nah my PC and Aloth managed to CC the whole room long enough for Pallegina, Eder and Takehu to clean up. Oh, nice job. Giacolo died in my game, but I feel like Pallegina appreciated that we tried at least. I really like having talks with her in this game. She kinda steals the shows, when it comes to companions.

  5. by that logic I should've spent the last couple of years raging about Pallegina's faux-Italian accent. and then she has a faux-Italian accent but she's black in pseudo-medieval times and she's in a fantasy video game and she has feathers... I cannot suspend my disbelief that far, the accent has GOT TO GO. people get hung up on the silliest things sometimes. ---edit--- cannot spell.
  6. the fact that they speak English on an alien fantasy planet is fine. but god forbid they don't speak all fancy.
  7. The story, maybe, is decent. The storytelling and the script are abhorrent. And I wouldn't say "funny". The second game has moments of wit, though.
  8. I'd just sacrifice him and get a cool effigy. As it is Maia's gonna have to be it. I'd call you a fiery whore of a player for sacrificing Maia, but that might be against forum policy. So I will not call you that. If I sacrifice anyone from the party, it's Xoti. I like the rest too much.
  9. Nor should she care. I get her. ---EDIT--- It's just that Pallegina has been othered by everyone in her life, her entire life. She owes no explanations. If she went around murdering innocents, I'd still be able to find sympathy for her - because it'd be the cruel world who'd turn her to that. But still she's trying to be a force for order and betterment of others. I dig Pallegina.
  10. That's the thing, really - you know her. To an average Eoran, she comes off as completely insane. Case in point: Tekehu's reaction to her meltdown during the whole figurine thing. It's reasonable to agree with Pallegina's views, yes. Still, despite her full knowledge of the status quo, she consistently chooses horrible and tone-deaf ways of communicating them to people. To be perfectly honest, I can relate. I come off as an insane person a lot. Representation matters.
  11. As someone who liked Hiravias, I'll just go and cry in the corner over there :D Here's hoping for some sort of cameo in future dlc's. I like him, too! I also love love love Sagani. They're just not really sequel material, if you know what I mean.
  12. Devs didn't choose returning companions for their iconic status but by who had the most sense to be in Deadfire. Eder because of Eothas, Aloth because of his unfinished business with the Leaden Key, Pallegina because of VRC. and the fact that those three are the most liked and most iconic characters from POE1 did not hurt. if people loved Hiravias as much as they love Eder, he'd suddenly have a reason to show up in the Deadfire, believe you me.
  13. Ahh, Rekke just told me that I should take him home and he would show me what fun is. *thinks about what-ifs* *scurries off to write fanfic*
